Cajundennis Newbie

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello.  You can call me Dennis.  I had to make up a name, so I took it from the mfg. of my smoker and my name.  I am not a Cajun, but I do like Cajun food.  I am new to smoking; however I have tasted some very good smoked meats.  So, I decided to get me a smoker and give it a try.  I am a retired construction safety guy from Henderson, KY which is in the Western part of Kentucky, across the Ohio river from Evansville, Indiana.  I just purchased a 4 rack Cajun Electric smoker.  I plan to smoke beef, pork, chicken, fish, and maybe some lamb.  I am looking forward to trying some of the recipes that I have seen on this site.  Thank you ahead of time for all the help that you will give to me.
